We are currently recruiting experienced bus drivers to join us in our new team designated solely for Rail Replacement work, on weekends, public holidays and occasional weekdays.

Our vehicle fleet is approximately 2,300 buses.
As a Rail Replacement Bus Driver, you will be reporting directly to the Commercial Operations Manager. However, due to working out of various garages, virtually all work will be requested, allocated and posted, via our web based employee portal. Therefore, having good knowledge and the ability to be self-sufficient in the use of email and web based systems will be key. You must also have a proactive approach towards communication as building a positive relationship with the Commercial Operating Manager and Supervisor will be essential.
In return we are offering pay of £17.00 per hour (this includes £1.78 per hour in lieu of accruing holiday entitlement). Specifically, this means the holiday you accrue will be paid within your hourly rate, on a pay as you go basis (rolled up holiday pay). There will not be a weekly minimum work/hours guarantee. However, full duties will be paid sign on to sign off (inclusive of meal reliefs) with a minimum shift of 5 hrs 30.
All licence medicals and ongoing CPC training will be included in this role as well as company uniform. Given the nature of the work, you will not be eligible for any staff travel concessions.
